An ‘anti-woke’ coalition emerged in the 2020 elections

An ‘anti-woke’ coalition emerged in the 2020 elections

Andrew Yang: In the minds of blue collar workers he met on the campaign trail, “the Democratic Party, unfortunately, has taken on this role of the coastal urban elites who are more concerned about policing various cultural issues than improving their way of life”

There is a lot of usual inside-the-beltway conventional nonsense analysis and bluster going around about the elections. Ignore it, it’s the same dishonest take we’ve seen in the mainstream media and polling organizations for years.

You should take some measure of comfort in the backlash against oppressive cultural elites forcing identify politics on the nation. You might not see it, because of how the presidential election (appears as of now) to have turned out. But there are perceptive analyses from two people to which I want to call your attention. They are anti-Trump, but recognized that Trump built a coalition rejecting woke politics.

First up, Andrew Sullivan in his Weekly Dish newsletter (sorry, no public link). The analysis is larded down with the usual anti-Trump vitriol and name calling, but as he has done before with regard to Trump, Sullivan drills down to some things Democrats/liberals/leftists don’t want to see or hear:

But Trumpism? It did far better than anyone expected. Down-ballot, many Republicans out-performed their nominal leader. The GOP made real gains in the House — during a health crisis and a recession — and will probably hold the Senate, effectively checkmating any truly progressive ambitions Biden might have had. The rural turnout was spectacular, responding perhaps to Trump’s incredibly boisterous series of big rallies as the campaign came to a close. This was far from the Biden landslide I had been dreaming about a few weeks back. It was rather the moment that the American people surgically removed an unhinged leader and re-endorsed the gist of his politics. It was the moment that Trump’s core message was seared into one of our major political parties for the foreseeable future, and realigned American politics….

His impact, however, is undeniable. Neoconservatism is over; globalization as some kind of conservative principle is over; a conservatism that allows for or looks away from unrestrained mass immigration is over. What was cemented in place this week is a new GOP, not unlike the new Tories in the UK. They’re nationalist, culturally conservative, geared toward the losers of capitalism as well as its winners, and mildly protectionist and isolationist. It is a natural response to the unintended consequences of neoliberalism’s success under a conservative banner. And it speaks in a language that working class Americans understand, devoid of the woke neologisms of the educated elite. It seems to me that this formula is a far more settled and electorally potent coalition than what we now see among the deeply divided Democrats….

Obviously a big majority of non-white and non-straight voters still backed Democrats. But the emergence of this coalition of minority conservatives is fascinating — and, of course, a complete refutation of what critical race theory tells us how minorities must feel. Ditto the gender gap. It’s there, but not quite the gulf we were led to believe.

Second is former Democrat primary candidate (and likely Biden cabinet member if Biden becomes president) Andrew Yang, who had an equally perceptive take:

“I would say, ‘Hey! I’m running for president!’ to a truck driver, retail worker, waitress in a diner, and they would say, ‘What party?’ And I’d say ‘Democrat’ and they would flinch like I said something really negative or I had just turned another color or something like that.” Yang told CNN host Don Lemon during a panel.

“So you have to ask yourself, what has the Democratic Party been standing for in their minds?,” he continued. “And in their minds, the Democratic Party, unfortunately, has taken on this role of the coastal urban elites who are more concerned about policing various cultural issues than improving their way of life that has been declining for years.”

This is all against the backdrop of a right-shift in the electorate. William Saletan at liberal Slate writes:

What the heck just happened? It’s been a crazy election, and ballots are still being counted, but we can get a few ideas from the exit polls….

First, this electorate seems to have been more conservative than the 2016 electorate. In the 2016 exit polls, conservatives outnumbered liberals by 9 percentage points. In the initial 2020 numbers, the margin is 13 points….

The conservative tilt of this electorate, particularly amid such high turnout, bodes ill for Democrats….

All of the above analysis is reflected in federal and state races throughout the country with Republicans far exceeding expectations and polling. It’s no substitute for winning the presidency, but it does reflect that the obsessive cultural purge being conducted on campuses and corporations is not playing well.

These down ballot election results were not in spite of Trump. To the contrary, it was a direct result of a new coalition that belongs to Trump and it seems very unlikely that they voted for everyone but him. These are not GOP voters at all and should not be mistaken as such.

no wonder polling is so flawed, how do you use an exit poll and view it as credible when more people than ever voted by mail

Trump won the election.

Trump had awfully long coattails for somebody that ‘lost’.

So long as only Democrats are allowed to count the votes while the court system refuses to enforce the law, it won’t matter.

The battle isn’t over since the vote has still not been finalized. And the commies have yet to consolidate their hold in the House where a very bitter war is emerging.

I really doubt that a future of nothing but rigged elections sits well with most elected Democrats currently since that means voters don’t count and they will have to learn to emulate the shameless, corrupt toadies among them or be replaced by an apparachtik. That is what gives me hope that the Democratic House war will be ended by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy being elected Speaker. This is the Democrats’ “lesser of two evils” option.

With Congressional purse strings tied down, Biden might cause a ruckus early on with his EOs but none of his big programs would fly for at least two years. Then Dem bloodbath in the House.

The question is whether Soros’ Squad will have the means of arresting Trump and Trump supporters and maintaining non-stop and spreading urban violence. This is a “by any means necessary” crowd that has been empowered by the Uniparty, constitution killing court system, local law enforcement that stands around during the violence, and our media and cultural elites.

Lets keep hoping that Trump finds help within the court system to enforce the law. You can forget about AG Barr doing his job.

You cannot be everything to every person. Too many of the supposed stances of the left are diametrically opposed. I know a lot of Union people, construction and maintenance types, and it is rare, other than the Union leadership, to find those who are supportive of the left. It’s been this way for a while in my area, and it is growing stronger that they are more conservative.

The Republicans under Bush went Globalist. Both father and son are NWO disciples. That is the underpinning of the Uniparty.

Biden and his party didn’t win. They used massive voter fraud to make it look like they won. The propagandist media is doing what it can to provide cover for the steal. Trouble is, it was so massive because President Trump had such a large block of voters, they were caught flatfooted and had to make up hundreds of thousands of votes. That they cheated during Obama’s elections and Hillary’s attempt is obvious when you see what they did this time. The pollsters over sample Democrats because they know there is always a level of voter fraud on their behalf which they look to account for.

The left are power mad. I fear for this world with them in power.

    I agree 100.00%. The Globalists like Bush need to be called out, not protected just because they are Republicans (In Name Only).

    Why anyone, let alone nearly have of the voting population, would support ANY lack of transparency in vote counting just boggles my mind. Places where they locked observers out and/or papered over their windows would have been broken into or burned down by our forebears. Any amount of fraud indicates fraud. Just like being just a little pregnant is being pregnant.

    If we don’t right this wrong we are going to be ruled by the Globalist’s New World Order until we are struck by an asteroid or rise up in revolt. (We’re screwed.)

One example isn’t proof of anything but it’s a start. In 2017 I moved to Nevada to be with family. I transferred my driver’s license and I registered to vote.

A year later I moved back to Arkansas (Tom Cotton country) and transferred my drivers license and re-registered in Arkansas. Six months later I was receiving mailings from political candidates in Nevada seeking election. I also received notice of my absentee ballot. I joked with my dad about how I could vote twice if I didn’t mind the risk of fine and/or prison.

And I wondered how many other expatriates from Nevada are still on their voter roll and, more importantly, how many of the ACTUALLY DO VOTE TWICE?

This has continued. This year, 2 years later, my absentee ballot from Nevada was there for the taking.

This cannot be an isolated incident and I believe we have lost control of our country. Influencers with deep pockets and even deeper reach are determining what will happen. I have never been a fan of wacky conspiracy theories, until I’ve witnessed the past four years and the shenanigans and lies and deceit and in-your-face coup attempts.

    There were reports from Nevada that their blanket mailing of ballots to everyone resulted in close to a quarter million being returned as they were sent to addresses where the addressee no longer resided, or never did. That is the number *returned*; who knows how many were kept and put to use.

    I seriously doubt this is unique to the silver state.

    For my money, if someone cannot get off their duff and register to vote and then get that duff to the polls on the appointed day (or fill out one more form and get an absentee ballot), I don’t want them to vote. If they can’t do the prep work they sure as hell haven’t taken the time to evaluate the candidates, their positions, or the other issues on the ballot.

    zennyfan in reply to WestRock. | November 9, 2020 at 7:08 pm

    Ninety percent of the election calls and texts I received were from NV (I kept my NV cell number). Apparently I’m still registered there despite having lived in and being registered in TX for two and a hard years.

Westrock…”I have never been a fan of wacky conspiracy theories, until I’ve witnessed the past four years and the shenanigans and lies and deceit and in-your-face coup attempts.”

There is something to this. What is behind their push for power that has to happen right now?
There is so much more to the insanity

The Andrews (Sullivan and Yang) and other NeverTrumpers are opportunists at best, and certainly not allies. Both Sullivan and Yang claim to be appalled at the growing totalitarian nature of the Left, yet both are totalitarians themselves. They are on the outside of the inner Communist Party and would flip-flop in a heartbeat if they thought it would bring them power.

Sullivan’s and Yang’s analysis reminds me of “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism” that Winston Smith obtained and read in Orwell’s 1984. “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism” purported to be an exposure of the lies behind Incsoc yet was actually written and distributed by the Party. Sullivan and Yang know the Left is totalitarian yet they still want the power for themselves.

use their words against them

“come at me, bro”

If Biden gets into the White House, RESIST, RESIST, RESIST.
Give back to them what they gave to us.
Don’t go along, RESIST.
Don’t cooperate; RESIST.

OK, folks. Just a word of forewarning here;
As you know, Mitch McConnell “convinced” Mitt Romney to vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett.
I’ll bet my back teeth that Mitch promised Romney the 2024 Presidential nomination for that vote.

Numerous Democrat Led Non-Profits Are Connected to Likely Illegal Absentee Ballot Harvesting in Georgia After the Election

Gateway Pundit

What the new emerging majority against elitist wokism must keep in mind is who are their enemies-college and university faculties, media personnel, government bureaucrats, and most blacks dependent as they are on government handouts and special privileges. Just take a hard look at how university affirmative action works–the chief beneficiaries are what Harvard euphemistically calls “legacies” and blacks–Asian Americans are the most screwed and they are beginning to get wise. Hispanics are not yet fully aware. Educational achievement statistics
show Hispanics far ahead of blacks, but look at the tiny number of Hispanics at places like Harvard and Yale compared to blacks.
